Glenna was a very good friend to us when we first arrived to our farm at Nesbitt. She brought goodies, shared her cooking skills, treated our daughters like her own grandkids by remembering their birthdays and even looking after them when we had to go to Alberta. Glenna encouraged us to go to dances and demonstrated her love of line dancing on many occasions. We had a good chat at Burger Friday in Wawanesa mid July this year and Glenna was enquiring about all our family. So sorry to hear about her passing and to have missed her funeral service. We all have treasured memories of a wonderful friend.

Dear Families, Thinking of all of you on the loss of your Mom/Grandma. Treasure all the memories - they are so special. Share them with each other. Your Mom continued to send us Christmas cards for many years after we left Ninette. Sending hugs.
Hugs Rick Sue Brent Krista & Henry Bomak Family
